For all those guys looking to get their hands on their uniforms and swag the wait is over. We had to work with administration to figure out what we were going to do with fees for our season since it was cut way too short. Here's the breakdown of fees for this year:
Participation Fee: $25 (we played about 1/4 of the season)
Equipment Fee: $0
Uniform Fee: whatever you ordered . . . see button below
To get you your uniforms, please sign up for a time to come in and get your gear, if today or tomorrow don't work I'll add some more days next week. You will need to come during the time you sign up for so we adhere to social distancing. If you received a pair of shorts and polo already but didn't get a logo on them (the A or Caveman head) bring them with you and I can heat press those on for you during your pickup.
Pickup will be in our team supply room, south side of the old gym. The door will be propped open and I'll be there.
After a great start to the season (check out match scores link below) things have taken an unexpected turn. With the safety of everyone in mind, tennis has been shut down for a while. For at least the next two weeks all UHSAA sports are suspended. That means we're not to practice, play, or have any organized activity until the suspension is lifted. We'll let you know when things change.
Teams for the AFHS Boys Tennis program are posted below. Please attend the practice times posted for each team.
Varsity/JV Team (2:30 - 4:30)
Practice Squad (4:00 - 5:30)
For those trying out for the Boys Tennis team this year, please show up at the following times below with warm clothes comfortable enough to play in 39 degree weather. Each player will be evaluated by coaches as they drill, workout, and play matches. There are three tournaments set up to allow each player match play scenarios. Some matches might begin before 3:00pm to allow maximum use or courts, those players will be notified.
Most courts will be used for match play, the remaining courts will be used for drills with players not currently playing matches
The season is right around the corner! Hopefully the weather will cooperate and we'll be to start on time this season. Check out the links below to learn more about tryouts, the season schedule, ect.
For those interested in playing tennis this year, plan on attending a quick info meeting on February 13th during lunch in Herrud's room (#114). We'll discuss tryouts, team makeup, schedules, and gear. If you have any questions, contact Coach Herrud.

Week 5 Schedule
Here's what's on tap this week:
Tuesday - Match @ Skyridge, 3pm.
Wednesday - Varsity Practice, 2:30 pm, Practice Squad match vs. Corner Canyon, 5pm.
Thursday - Match @ Westlake, 3pm.
Friday - Varsity practice, 2:30; Practice Squad practice, 4:15
Here's the update on the uniforms . . . to avoid the hassle and less confusion we're asking that if the girls don't want the grey tank that they exchange it on their own. You'll need Coach Jana's phone number, and a copy of the receipt (also get from Coach Jana). Tags have to be on it and even then it's not guaranteed they'll exchange it . . . it depends on who's behind the counter. If you wanna keep it, perfect.
The captains decided to go ahead and order the red tank as a third item (instead of the grey) so if you'd like one, please let coach Jana know by tomorrow so we can get you the discounted price.
Duel in the Desert #1
We took 10 gals down the St. George this past weekend to play in the Duel in the Desert tournament with 14 other schools. Jocelyn, Sydney, Emilee, Abbie, Katie, Malia, Anna, Ashley, Erica, and Lindsey all played matches against other varsity teams and ended up with a 3-1 record, playing some excellent tennis along the way. Here's how they fared:
AF def. Stansbury 4-1
Olympus def. AF 4-1
AF def. Hurricane 4-1
AF def. Manti 4-1
2-0 Start in Region Play
The team kicked off region play this last week by defeating both Westlake and PG. AF didn't lose a match vs. Westlake as both Varsity and JV swept them 5-0. Against a tough PG team, the gals took the "W" for both Varsity (3-2) and JV (4-1) as it came down to the wire. Congrats to the ladies for starting off so strong.
This week doesn't get any easier . . . on Tuesday we take on Corner Canyon (@ CC) and on Thursday we take on LP (@ Skyridge). Tell your friends and family to come out to support!
